Great news from bunq today, they just launched Giropay for topups, for German users just like they added Bancontact for that awhile ago for Belgian users.
Both are of course nice when it comes to topping up, but this is only half of what these two systems can be used for.
Just like iDEAL for the Netherlands and SOFORT for a bunch of other countries, both are also payment methods for webshops and in apps.
So as a lot of people are at home now because of the pandemic, whether mandatory or on some such thing as an intelligent lock-down, getting your basic needs is more challenging then ever, so a lot of us turn to online to get our groceries, clothing, disposables, medical supplies and other goods.
in these dire times it would also benefit a lot of smaller webshops and apps across Belgium and Germany, wo do not necessarily always take creditcards, to have the benefit of us bunqers being able to shop at them, when respectively Bancontact and Giropay are the only options...
Therefore, let's turn this into wish for bunq to add Giropay as an option for payment requests from the bunq app and bunqMe pages.
And ASAP for both of them to be added inside of the bunq app alongside the great iDEAL and SOFORT support to be used by all bunq users (agnostic) wherever they may reside on any Belgian and German e-commerce websites, store fronts and marketplace apps.
